The chefs compete to create a menu that is served at the end of the series prestigious banquet. The final coincided with the 65th Birthday of Paddington Bear, and the finals week was a celebration of Britain’s animation industry – from illustrators, animators to comic book heroes – a veritable visual spectacle!

Optomen contacted us at the end of November 2022 in preparation for filming at Brighton’s Royal Pavilion. Although they liaised direct with the Pavilion to arrange filming inside the building, we arranged traffic management, catering, and crew from the 31st January to the 2nd February to ensure a smooth running production.
